On 1 July 1990, the vision became a reality when the partnership became a juridical reality. It began with three lawyers, two secretaries and a messenger. The office had more rooms and cubicles than people to use them; it was built for future growth. It was at the 7th Floor, a good number. The budget was small, and often the receipts were just enough to meet the overhead. What little amount was made was quickly flowed back into computers, fax and copying machines. The library needed to continuously be furnished with more reference books and publications of Supreme Court decisions.
Eventually, the marketing efforts began to pay off. Word began to spread that the firm is the law firm of the future. After a year’s period, the firm has managed to surpass the projections laid down in the beginning. Retainer-based clients have more than doubled, and legal business had tripled. The ratio of computers to lawyers began and has remained at one-to-one. The library has become a fairly decent collection of law books. The original office had become cramp with the joining of more members. An additional office had to be opened at the 9th Floor, another good number. The Firm had grown to nine lawyers, a bookkeeper, four secretaries, a docket clerk, and three paralegals. In addition, an incorporated business venture was attached to the Firm.
